The TEG® 6s system measures the same physical properties as the TEG 5000 Thrombelastograph® system, with assessment of clot viscoelasticity throughout the coagulation process.

New to the TEG system technology is the measurement of clot viscoelasticity using a resonance method. To measure the clot strength with the resonance method, the sample is exposed to a fixed vibration frequency. With LED illumination, a detector measures up/down motion of the blood meniscus. The frequency leading to resonance is identified and then converted to the TEG system readout. Stronger clots have higher resonant frequencies and higher TEG readouts.
